  • New Report Claims Apple Wants 100 Million Subscribers for New Music Streaming Service

    With WWDC 2015 less than an hour away, everyone is on the edge of their seat wondering what Apple will be unveiling at the event. The topic of Apple’s revamped streaming music service has been talk of the Internet, with Sony Music CEO Doug Morris even confirming that the company would be launching it today. New information from an Associated Press source is claiming that the Cupertino-based company is looking to sign 100 million subscribers. If you ask us 100 million is a very lofty goal for a new service, although they did not mention what the time frame would be.

    Even Popular music streaming service Spotify only has 60 million subscribers as of the beginning of this year and Spotify has been around for a while now. So with Apple’s 100 million subscribers goal, we must say it seems a little farfetched. Spotify also noted that only 15 million of their 60 million subscribers are paid subscribers. We guess everyone will just have to wait and see what Apple has in store for customers with their revamped music service. Maybe it will incorporate unique features that will lure more people than expected to sign up for their service.

    What are your thoughts on this? Do you think you will leave Spotify and Pandora for Apple’s new music service? Share with us in the comments below. Also, be sure to stay tuned as we will have live coverage of WWDC coming up.

      The commercials feature DJ's and "artists" to convey the illusion that iTunes is used by professionals. I don't think it's true at all until the ability to play and download lossless audio. MP3 is just a different demographic. At least we should have the option to choose. What are your thoughts on this?
